More than 1,000 dead birds fall from sky in Ark

Jan 2, 2011 | Posted by: Inisa Love | Full story: news.yahoo.com

BEEBE, Ark. Wildlife officials are trying to determine what caused more than 1,000 blackbirds to die and fall from the sky over an Arkansas town.

The Arkansas Game and Fish Commission said Saturday that it began receiving reports about the dead birds about 11:30 p.m. the previous night. The birds fell over a 1-mile area of Beebe, and an aerial survey indicated that no other dead birds were found outside of that area.

<quoted text>Ive got a russian 7.62X 54 sniper rifle. It was used in the war. it has a bayonett on the barrell. With steel jacket ammo it will shoot a 3/8 hole through a 1/2 thick steel dozer blade. years ago when I could see better I squirrl hunted with it using steel jacket ammo. Shoot them in the head and it didnt do as much damage as a 22 would. I also have a british 303. nowadays I carry a Ruger Blackhawk 44 handgun and a 12 guage pump shotgun almost everywhere I travel. the 44 has a laser sight and I am deadly with it. Its a large hand gun but I can carry it concealed under my bib overhalls. Part of that beer gut is a handgun.
I've got Abe Lincoln's axe. Its had five new heads and fifty new handles.

I shoot heavy loads with the 44. Everything Ive shot with it was right there stone dead one shot. Body armor wouldnt help a bit against a 44. and Im not worried about someone coming to my door to confinscate my guns. Ill give them to them and they wouldnt like it very much.

Considering you said there are "so many," it sounds like you missed far more than two. LOL

It's damn shame. What the establishment parties did to that honest, decent man is appalling. It's even worse how everyone walks around in a damn stupor- doing what they are told, when they are told to do it.

It's no wonder Hitler found it so easy to scare whole armies into murder of innocent people for no reason. If any one man would have refused Hitlers round up and kill orders, or turned against him, the masses would have ridiculed or even killed him, because the majority of the people are weak. They are afraid to stand up for what's right. Ron Paul did. He honored his oath of office. A few of us recognized that, appreciated it and supported him for it. Our numbers were growing fast as we presented the facts about his record and spread his message of peace, freedom and prosperity one person at a time.

The media under orders from the top, shut him down. When corporations and advertisers saw the traction Paul was getting, they got scared. Fiscal responsibilty became something they really had to take seriously and they feared that -BIGTIME! The media suddenly created some fake racist story- that quickly faded away after it was debunked.

But the citzenry is so hell bent on sports and competing with their neighbors, they don't see the obvious and they don't reseach and check up on what their elected leaders are doing. Most have never read the Constitution or the Bill of Rights either. They just turn on Fox, MSNBC or CNN and vote for the candidate their favorite tv personality says to vote for because THEY have done ALL the research for everyone.

Our founders were courageous and brilliant. They created the greatest amount of peace, freedom and prosperity ever known to man. They recognized what the human spirit wanted and needed and they knew human nature could also be evil and power-hungry. They brilliantly drew up a document that took all those things into consideration, as best as they could. Millions of men and women fought and died to preserve that document. Ron Paul was as close to our founders in his beliefs than we have seen in a LONG time!

What in the hell does all this have to do with dead blackbirds? What happened to that subject? This thread has gotten so far out there it's ridiculous. So back on subject at hand, did they ever find an actual legit reason for the dead fish and birds?

Can you explain exactly WHAT his foreign policy would be, why it would be what it is, and what makes it dangerous?

Before answering think of this:
What the Constitution says this governments' limits of power are.
How you personally would feel about...say...China....if they bombed this country and killed people here in an effort to change our government- for the better- in their opinion.
Current anti-American sentiment around the world.
When this anti-American sentiment started.

I have an opinion that these companies drilling into the earth and taking resources and replacing them with silica sand and poisonous chemical gases trying o come up with a way to replace something that im sure our ecosystem has become nuetral with and then adapted and then changes and ignorant superiors or whom ever is turning there heads because of greedy habits. Im just saying that maybe the all seeing eye maybe has been blinded just dont be blind to greed or the fact that the freaking world around us will tell all in time whats going on imean listen understand theres only 1 one chance to live 1world to live it in but space is another reason space stations all need resources and in metaphorical terms is like a huge misquito sucking the life out of this earth. Earth is like a body and the oils and gases and water are its fluids kinda like our blood in our bodies all living things act as a renewer or cycles and renews when people take and put man made trash and chemical gases and in abundance .the parasites are the people who enable this BS to be possibly happening.
